The Lamplighter


Published January 29, 2010


LibriVox recording of The Lamplighter, by Maria Susanna Cummins. Read by Bridget Gaige.

Gertrude began life as an abused child in the care of Nan Grant, a cold and cruel woman. The only human character who was kind to her was the lamplighter, Truman Flint. When Nan, in one of her tantrums, threw Gertrude away from her house, he took her into his care. A few unforgettable people taught Gertrude everything that a young lady has to know. Almost everybody loves and admires Gertrude. But the one she loved best is Willie Sullivan. Will this love stay strong even after 6 years of separation? And will Gertrude, so admired and loved as she is, be happy - once in her life - for herself and not for others? (Summary by Stav Nisser)

Reviewer: benefitsingers - - October 12, 2010
Subject: The Light Within
I think this book had many religious undertones. It was about the light within and how that is what makes people truly beautiful. I am not very religious but the story was very nice and quite uplifting. Bridget does her usual fabulous job of narration. Her voice is young and spirited which makes you believe she is Gertrude.
